‘I don’t hate Donald, I hate you’ — Howard Stern, a longtime Trump friend, blasts those who voted for him


Howard Stern, the shock jock who brought us Fartman, clearly isn’t one to shy away from controversy. His outrageous comments and antics have earned him a devoted fan base.

However, he might have just lost a few.

On Tuesday, Stern alienated what has to be the rather large Venn diagram overlap of Trump supporters and his millions of listeners, when he unleashed this rant on his SiriusXM show:

‘The oddity in all of this is the people Trump despises most, love him the most.’

Stern, who endorsed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election despite his friendly history with Trump, said the president’s supporters essentially got duped into putting him in office.

“I don’t hate Donald,” he continued. “I hate you for voting for him, for not having intelligence. For not being able to see what’s going on with the coronavirus, for not being able to see what the Justice Department is doing. I hate you, I don’t want you here.”

Stern went on to say that Trump would be “disgusted” by the MAGA crew. “Go to Mar-a-Lago, see if there is any people who look like you,” he said. “I’m talking to you in the audience.”

His advice to Trump? Do the right thing.

“I do think it would be extremely patriotic of Donald to say, ‘I’m in over my head and I don’t want to be president anymore,’” he said, while acknowledging that is not likely to happen.

The social-media response was swift, and, as expected, extremely divided as “Howard Stern” climbed to the top of Twitter’s

trending list:

There were those who agreed:

And, of course, those who didn’t:

Stern, who has had the president on his show many times over his storied career in broadcasting, has long held the contention that Trump never wanted to actually win the election.

“I firmly believed that Donald did not want to run for president,” he told CBS late-night TV host Stephen Colbert in an interview last year. I don’t think it was serious. I don’t think he wanted to be the president. I knew him. He had a great life at Mar-a-Lago.”
